Creator Darren Star and executive producer Aaron Spelling followed up on the massive success of their 1990s teen drama BEVERLY HILLS 90210 with a spin-off series that went on to match its parent shows popularity and must-see TV status. A grownup racier version of 90210 MELROSE PLACE harkened back to the days of classic night time soaps like DYNASTY and DALLAS while adding a decidedly younger hipper edge with amped-up levels of sex betrayal murder and a multiple personality or two. The backstabbing action centred around a group of fashionable affluent twentysomethings living in a stylish apartment complex on the titular L.A. strip vulnerable ad exec Alison Parker (Courtney Thorne-Smith) her roommate/love interest Billy Campbell (Andrew Shue) the increasingly conniving doctor Michael Mancini (Thomas Calabro) his sweetly innocent wife Jane (Josie Bissett) her trashy stripper sister Sydney (Laura Leighton) nice guy Jake Hanson (Grant Show) openly gay Matt Fielding (Doug Savant) tough New York transplant Jo Reynolds (Daphne Zuniga) the utterly psychotic Kimberly Shaw (Marcia Cross) and of course one of the best villainous vixens in TV history Amanda Woodward (Heather Locklear). The ultimate guilty pleasure MELROSE PLACEs second series is presented in its entirety with this collection of 31 episodes featuring guest appearances by Famke Janssen Gina Gershon and Linda Gray.
